OK, first the earth shattering news. My mast was stepped on Wednesday, and I am scheduling a shakedown cruise on June 21. Seems I may be back in the saddle!
Now for the question. My mast has been out for nearly 3 years, it has never been tuned, I cut an inch off the mast (and raised the step an inch), the step is entirely new and probably moved at least 1/32", maybe more. Bottom line, this is an ideal time to tune my rig.
The shrouds are easy. But backstay/forestay tension is harder, and best done with a Loos gauge.
So, does anyone have a Loos gauge I can borrow? Wire size 9/32.
And yes, I know this is all racer-dude stuff. But I have raced too many years, it's in my blood.
